The Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) should learn to be responsible and stop its alleged rascality.
The group claimed that the PDP had acted in a manner that showed it as a confused party wandering in the wilderness, since it lost the 2019 presidential election.
BMO, in a statement by its chairman Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary Cassidy Madueke, made available to newsmen on Wednesday, said the PDP should “cultivate the habit of being a responsible opposition, rather than a perpetual rascal that disseminates lies to cause disaffection and confusion in the polity.”
It added that the PDP party had run out of ideas to constructively engage as a credible opposition party. “Rather its only contribution is engineering confusion and divisions in the country,” BMO said.
It was reacting to PDP’s recent claims that President Muhammadu Buhari could not seal any meaningful economic agreement at the 7th Tokyo International Conference on African Development, but only came home with an empty basket and pockets full of promissory notes.
In its response, BMO said, “Like a drowning man, the PDP has not ceased clutching at straw, and that is exactly what it was doing in its latest attempt to cast aspersion on the Buhari administration and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), in regards to Nigeria’s showing at the conference.”
According to the Buhari group, the opposition party cannot appreciate good governance because it spent its 16 years in power looting the treasury, abusing power, denying Nigerians any dividend of democracy and mismanaging the polity and the economy of the country.
The group added, “In a sane society PDP members would bury their heads in shame for wasting the fortunes of the country for 16 years.
“Contrary to PDP’s position that Nigeria did not get any meaningful economic gains from the Tokyo conference, there are a lot of benefits accruing to Nigeria, among of which are 300 million dollars from The Japanese government, promissory notes from the European Union (EU) and other bilateral benefits.”
